All in a year's work

In which the Deputy Editor reviews his 1979 motoring activities  It doesn't feel as if a year has passed since I last wrote this annual review, and looking back through my diary for this flash of time I wonder how I have managed to fit in the long list of cars driven, the countries and events visited, the production of 12 issues of this magazine and a semblance of relatively normal life as well....

Fragments on forgotten makes

No. 30 –– The Crouch The Crouch was one of the multitudinous family of light cars which came into being in essentially simple form before the First World War. It survived into peacetime, developed into a sporting 4-cylinder, but went the way of many, failing under the onslaught of mass-produced cars like Morris and Clyno by 1927. Through the co-operation of Andrew Whyte of Jaguar Cars Ltd., I was...

Around and about

BRM Auction Sale At the Motofair at Earls Court, on October 22nd, the remains of the BRM works team were put up for auction by Christie's, the Hon. Patrick Lindsay running the sale with a delightful touch of gentleness and efficiency, his auctioneering technique being qui te charming. Apart from works drawings, various aspects of administration, documentary films and odds and ends, there were...

Rally review

Swedish Rally Scandinavian winters being what they are, long and cold, it's almost inconceivable that February's Swedish Rally should have taken place on anything but roads plentifully covered by ice and snow. Sweden becomes white for months every winter, and remembering that the Monte-Carlo Rally has snow only on some parts of its route, the Swedish Rally is the only event in the World...

Racers Apart

Motor racing biographies are commonplace. Racers Apart, by Motor Sport's Executive Editor David Tremayne is something new. The author has chosen a selection of drivers - not all of them circuit racers - who have particularly appealed to him. Some of them he has worked with in his role as F1 correspondent for Motoring News, some created a deep impression during his youth, others left a legacy he...

My year's motoring

The Editor looks back on the cars he drove during 1971 The time—how it flies!—has come to review briefly the motoring experiences of last year. I am not sure who instituted this idea of an annual road-test survey. I think it may have been H. S. Linfield, who did this in a fascinating manner in The Autocar before the war, a practice copied by Motor Sport in the post-war period and since followed...

Service Interval

Before the war he was an up-and-coming racer but hostilities drew Tony Rolt from Donington to Colditz. He returned a war hero on the verge of stardom. Phil Llewellin profiles his remarkable career May 1940 was a month of immense drama as General Heinz Guderian's tanks crossed the River Meuse near Sedan and brought blitzkrieg to northern France, thrusting a spearhead between the French army and...

The Ford Fiesta

The Ford Fiesta A new front-wheel-drive baby for Europe In the early days of Issigonis' pioneering Mini, Ford proclaimed their disinterest in this ultra-small car sector of the market. Instead they aimed at the cheaper end of the medium-sized saloon sector and made a killing with the Cortina. Now, in these days of more sophisticated mini-cars, Ford have eaten their words and joined in the sales...

My Year's Motoring

The Editor looks back on the cars he drove in 1966 So another year is over and it is time to take stock of the cars I drove during 1966. I make no excuse for writing this series of abbreviated road-test reports other than to explain that I enjoy reading similar annual summaries by other motoring writers, and so I assume that there will be some interest in going over briefly the sort of motoring...
